Trivia

Louise mentions that her sister has talked with the lawyers, implying that she was on speaking terms with her. But in The Jeffersons (1975), it is stated that Louise and her sister haven't spoken to each other in decades since her sister ran away from home when she was a teenager. See more »

Goofs

A neighbor, "old man McNab," is said to have moved away years ago, but other episodes have the McNabs still living in the neighborhood; for example, they were referenced in the preceding episode "Mike's Hippie Friends Come to Visit." Perhaps "old man McNab" was the father of the current neighbors. See more »

Quotes

Archie: [Archie is explaining to Lionel why blacks shouldn't move into the neighborhood] They ain't gonna be happy here. What are they gonna do? What are they gonna do for recreation? There ain't a crap game or a pool hall in the whole neighborhood. There ain't a chicken shack or a rib joint within miles.
Lionel Jefferson: No ribs? Lawd All Mighty, what is we gonna do?
